Why would Asus make a screenless laptop when similarly powered computers with similar
power requirements can be obtained for half the price?
I agree with you generally about low power computing for public areas, but why the laptop vs
something with a real keyboard and mouse, that can be swapped out when necessary, and is cheaper?
I guess I don't see the motivation for either party.
But I'm more interested in the laptop itself.
The form factor seems, from what I've seen, a little too small. Maybe when I see one in
person it'll be better, but it looks like the screen is too small to work on, and the
keyboard would be similarly awkward.
